Twice Removed is proud to announce the release of Simon Whetham and Canned Fit “Elephant in the Salon”. Simon is a well-known UK experimental sound artist with releases on labels such as Cronica Electronica, Flaming Pines, Line, Rural Colours, The Helen Scarsdale Agency to name a few, while Canned Fit aka Christine Schörkhuber, a Vienna based sound artist has appeared on digital various artists compilations. This is her first physical appearance. The sound artist Christine Schörkhuber works with a fragile yet powerful setup consisting of self-built electronic analogue interfaces, sonorous everyday commodities and her voice. The performance is trembling between subtle crunchy sounds, song fragments, noise-fields and penetrating drones.
Christine Schörkhuber and Simon Whetham met in early 2013 through mutual friend Luis Toto Alvarez where the three of them performed collaboratively in a darkened room in Quillota, Chile. It was there they realised that through very different means, they were producing similar and complementary results. Following the concert they discussed the possibility of collaboration, face-to-face, rather than file sharing. The opportunity arose while Simon was in residence at Villa Waldberta, Feldafing, Germany through February and March 2014. Christine visited for two weeks for the duo to share time and exchange ideas, which led to a number of intensive and extensive recording sessions during which the artists pushed each other to create a work that is uncharacteristic of their solo activities.
A cohesive piece of electroacoustic sound art over 3 “Chapters”, this features artwork from Damir Radovic and layout by Phil Gardelis (aka Zenjungle).This release comes in a printed 2 panel card edition of 100 copies with factory replicated disc.

While Reading I Like To Listen To Instrumental Music. CUTTING UP THE SUN Would be that rare exception. You need to strap on your space helmet listening to this release. Sit back & enjoy the ride, ELIAN will take you on a joyous journey through space via many an abrupt turn from galaxy to galaxy. A bit more electronic than my usual taste but most enjoyable none the less Michael LoCicero

The Prelude To is a story of beginnings.
I see the four main tracks as an introduction to each season, merging the modern classical sensitivity and the sense of expanded drones of Bartosz with the terrestrial electroacoustic glitches and organ/vocal features of Giulio to create a perfect aural osmosis.
And when it seemed too short for an album, we see three remixes that are everything but fillers, developing the story started before and completing it.
Hopefully the first of a long collection. Dotflac
